Well, dd is a low riser, so they work great for us. They are also very absorbent for an aio. And the size range is awesome. We really like them, and like a pp said, if they weren't $25+, we would have more! (I manage to find them once in a while on fsot for $10-12. . . ) I haven't had problems with wicking and prints, but maybe I'm just lucky . . . I also haven't used the most recent ones, just older ones. . .
